Impact

Our world will change.

That was the tagline Impact Wrestling had been using to promote their annual Slammiversary pay-per-view, with all of the teases being provided for the show creating an abundance of anticipation for the show. In total, six acts either returned or debuted, with EC3, Eric Young, Heath Slater, and The Good Brothers arriving in the company following their WWE releases, whereas Rich Swann was making his return from an ankle injury suffered back in January. The show began with a bang, as The Motor City Machine Guns reunited for the first time in two years to answer an open challenge from The Rascalz.

Even aside from the slew of surprises, the in-ring action made Slammiversary worth the watch. Deonna Purrazzo vs. Jordynne Grace and Chris Bey vs. Willie Mack were both match of the night contenders, while the main event World Championship match was also a fantastic story-telling contest. Moose vs. Tommy Dreamer and the Knockouts Championship number one contenders Gauntlet Match were both fought at weird paces, and The North vs. The World's Most Dangerous Tag Team was also a fun mid-card match.
